I’m a sucker for the World Cup, but hadn’t really paid much attention to the Confederations Cup after the USA’s start.

I guess now would be a good time to start.

The US upset the world’s top ranked Spain with a 2-0 shut out thanks to goals from Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey.

Though the tournament’s meaning is nothing compared to the World Cup, the upset has been compared to when the U.S. hockey team upset the Soviet Union at the Lake Placid Olympics in 1980.

The United States had lost it’s three previous match ups with Spain and with the win will advance to the finals against the winner of South Africa and Brazil
